Hersheypark (HP) Discussion Thread in Theme Parks, Roller Coasters, & Donkeys! Posted July 1, 2012 After spending yesterday in the park, playing the game of "Where's Big Mike", I can't complain about Sky Rush. The ride was exactly as expected. Intense changes of direction and good (an unexpected on your first ride) airtime. I was on the outside left on every ride, and the ride seemed to get better with each run. Park operations seems to be smooth, with speedy dispatches except for special circumstances. I was especially thankful that the water park was open yesterday, so much of the crowd spend the mid-day there and left the park for the rest of us. Walk on to everything except in Comet Hollow, and by the mid afternoon / early evening, even those rides were manageable. Hot Hot Hot was the word for the day, and dehydration was rampant. Drink lots of water, and never turn down an opportunity to drink some more! I failed at the "Where's Big Mike" game... Not for a lack of trying... I didn't realize that ACE had an event going on yesterday... I could find him in the crown of ACE'ers... I don't know if it was their size... their age... or their general slowness (could be due to size, age or heat)... but I just couldn't find the big guy anywhere in the park.
